Description

From the Jacket:

Feminist Thought situates the gender debate inside philosophy. The perceived gender neutrality of philosophy has been critiqued. Consequently the implications of radicalizing philosophy from a gender perspective are assessed.

This book introduces the notion of gender and its relation to androcentrism or male-centred virtues. An exposition of the various ways in which gender may enter conceptual schemes, logic and objectivity is given. In the course of providing an overview of contemporary debates the author has made seminal contributions. Her imaginative account of an alternative modern of communication deserves serious attention. This book will be indispensable to students and teachers who are eager to know the locations of gender in philosophy and also fro those who want to ponder upon possible ways of eradicating gender bias from theory.

Shefali Moitra is Professor of Philosophy at the Centre of Advanced Study, Jadavpur University, Kolkata. She is co-editor of Communication, Identity and Self-expression (Oxford University Press 1984), and the editor of Women Heritage and Violence (Papyrus 1996).
